Was supposed to work for this company as an entertainer starting in July. The problems started from when I was told I was going to training abroad with them (everyone would be going we were told at the intitial audition) I arranged to have time off for the month of training and was told TWO DAYS before that I wasn’t invited to attend the training course, being told I’d be trained when I got to my destination, which I was going to be told with two weeks notice, which was okay, two weeks was plenty of time. After not hearing from the company for months and an upcoming placement to be taken within a matter of days, I still had no idea what was going on, ALL of my messages were being ignored and I had no direct point of contact to speak to. Someone was ill, not my job etc etc. The whole thing was a complete shambles. It wasn’t until 2 days before I was meant to go anywhere that I received an email entitled ‘UPDATE’ which wasn’t an update at all, it was just to say they still hadn’t sorted out placements but would give us 24 hrs notice of where we were supposed to be going. NOT A CHANCE. It wasn’t worth the measley £600 a month even if it was a dream job of mine.
Luckily, I decided to ask advice from employees I met at the audition about what I should do, every single one of them said DO NOT TAKE THE JOB, you are overworked, they’re understaffed and unprofessional and management are awful (thought I got an insight to that from the complete lack of organisation) I don’t know one single person I met on my audition date who still works for them after beginning their placement.
Long hours, unorganised, complete shambles
